Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When her family must move once more, Ophelia uses her imagination to make magic out of a scary situation. Giant rabbits with sharp teeth circle the old motel where they are staying. Ophelia can also hear crow-witches cackling from the trees. And when it's time to go to her new school, she encounters an ogre who blocks the road with his giant ogre laughs. But most frightening of all is when Ophelia is left in her new class and realizes that everyone speaks French. Except her. The kids stare, and Ophelia feels like a fish in a fishbowl. But equipped with the magic of a sheet of white paper and a rainbow of pencils, she will find a way to cast her own spells over the class. Inspired by events from her own childhood, beloved children's author-illustrator Marie-Louise Gay weaves a wonderful tale of imagination, creativity and resilience as the keys to children's power in an uncertain world."-- Provided by publisher.
